💡 Before you get started downloading content, learn how to navigate a Brand Portal.
What kind of content is available for download
Brand Portals enable you to download different types of product content. They may have product specifications, images, videos, and other files available for you to download. Here are the different formats available for exporting information from a Brand Portal:
- Spreadsheet with product content and file URLs
- PDF product sheets
- Individual files
- ZIP files with multiple items
The 'Quote' option allows you to ask for more information from the vendor or partner you are working with. When choosing the 'Quote' selection, you will be shown a page where you can request different quantities of an item, input your name, and send an optional message with more information. Quotes are sent directly to your vendor or partner.
How to select products and files
From the product overview or product detail page use the switches on the top right corner to make your selection. You have the option to 'Review Selection' or click any of the download options to either begin your download or request a quote.
You can also enter a product detail page and add an individual product to your selection, or click to download (or request a quote for) all the products you've selected.
Don't worry, any previous selections you have made will stick around. For example, once you have selected an individual product from a product details page, then navigate back to the product overview, the product will still be selected.
You can also go to individual files and download them directly using the direct download arrow icon.
How to download a spreadsheet
You can download product data including related files using the Data Sheet export option.
This will open up further options for how to format your spreadsheet:
- Select your data format - CSV or XLSX.
- Select the product attributes you want to see in your spreadsheet.
- Choose to include a ZIP file of all selected product assets. You can also define the file types you want to download and if you would like to resize them.
ℹ️ The ZIP file selection will download a ZIP file for each selected product which contains all files connected to each product.
To finalize your download, provide an email address where the information will be sent, then click 'Download.' Your content will be packaged up and sent to you via email with a link that will expire after 15 days.
How to download a PDF
If the option is available to you, you can also download a PDF product sheet. Go to the download options and select 'Download PDF'.
To finalize your download, provide an email address where the PDF will be sent.
How products are sorted upon export
The order in which your selected products are populated in your PDF or data sheet is dependent on the order you have chosen the products to be displayed using the "Sorting" option. Set sorting conditions and define display order in the products tab to customize your output.
How to access downloaded content
When downloading from a Brand Portal, you will receive your selection via email through a download link that expires after 15 days.
In the e-mail, you will see the name of the portal you downloaded from, a 'Download your files' button, and a disclaimer.
When clicking the 'Download your files' button, you will be taken to a page where you can download your selection.
⚠️ If the Brand Portal is password protected, you will need to input the password to receive your downloaded content
